The Edge of Seventeen

Kelly Fremon Craig
 
(…) Kelly Fremon Craig’s debut film The Edge of Seventeen feints away from every adolescent cliché to create something far more wholly realized. The result is a story of young adulthood that isn’t afraid to be abrasive and emotionally confusing, while also making space for rare instances of vulnerability and tenderness.
(…)
This is a movie about a teen, first and foremost, rather than a “teen movie,” and that’s exactly what makes it feel like a peerless example for the genre.

[M]uch of what makes Nadine so compelling is the fact that she isn’t always nice. (…) She can be mean and impulsive and she’s often the victim of her own undoing. Steinfeld makes this intriguing jumble of contradictions feel real and alive. She doesn’t seem interested in making us like this girl who’s perched on the edge of womanhood. She just tries to make her feel true—and that’s what makes us love her.

(…) The Edge of Seventeen is better than good. A clever and poignant character study whose navel-gazing scope belies some big truths, The Edge of Seventeen is one of my favorite films of 2016. And it’s exactly the kind of movie I wish I’d had in my own Nadine years.
